@longde has created channel *Africa. Before we activate or decline, as is demanded by @siftbot, we must first determine if there is adequate community support for the new channel.

So cast your vote above and the majority will determine the future of @longde's Africa Experience.

Hi,

Here is a thread that gives some background on why Africa was chosen: http://videosift.com/poll/What-should-I-choose-as-a-channel

Basically the guidelines for this channel would be:

Africa is:

-Culture, History, Politics, Philosophy, Technology, & News of Africa and her Diaspora
-about Northern and Sub-saharan Africans of all races, and diaspora members
-Geological and Geographic Africa
-Travel within Africa, or within diaspora communities
-Individual stories that speak to the unique cultural experience of Africans & diaspora members

Africa is not:

-Insulting animations or images of black people
-People behaving badly towards black people
-Any old video with a black person in it that does not speak to larger issues of culture, history,
etc (e.g., some black dude just washing his car)
-racist or disproven theories about black people
-Black sports, movie, or music stars, unless they have made a very significant social/cultural impact
-Videos whose central theme is race or racism, and not Africa as defined above

Just out of curiosity, who are "diaspora members" in this context?

As an American I am offended by this. I don't know where the hell the city of Africa even is...

I voted yes, but I want to know where to put my "Any old videos with a black person in them".
